The best 'Monday Night Football' game of all time produced 29 gorgeous photos including one of Jared Goff's epic layup celebration

In one of the most highly anticipated matchups of the NFL season, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams faced off in a "Monday Night Football" contest for the ages.

Both teams entered Monday with a 9-1 record as well as young, prolific quarterbacks leading high-octane offenses that had taken the rest of the league by storm through the first 10 weeks of the season. The game quickly became a duel between the third-year Rams quarterback Jared Goff and the MVP hopeful Patrick Mahomes, and by the end of the night the duo had amassed a combined 891 passing yards and 10 touchdowns.

Los Angeles ultimately came out on top in an incredibly exciting, down-to-the-wire 54-51 affair. The teams' combined 105 points were the third most in an NFL game. It also marked the first time two teams ended a game with at least 50 points each.

Aside from producing some mind-boggling stats and highlight-reel-caliber plays, Monday night's marquee matchup at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum produced some truly incredible photos. Check out some of the best of the historic night here:
